The walks vary in difficulty and are ideal for families with young children or pushchairs, less able bodied people, and anyone that just wants a leisurely stroll.
Some walks have been surfaced to provide access for wheelchairs, others are footpaths or bridleways where the natural surface has not been changed. As a general guide, we have divided the walks into 'Easy Access Walks' and 'Adventure Walks'.
Easy Access Walks are the most accessible. Surfaces are hard and smooth and gradients are gentle: any gradients steeper than 1:20 (5%) are mentioned in the directions and indicated on the walk map.
Adventure Walks are longer, surfaces can be varied and gradients less gentle, although all gradients steeper than 1:12 (8.3%) are mentioned in the directions and indicated on the walk map.

At its most basic, slopes are gentler the higher the second number, i.e. a 1:8 gradient is steeper than a 1:15 gradient. For comparison: a 1:12 slope is the steepest allowed on ramps giving access to buildings in Britain.
You'll also find information about accessible beaches and viewpoints by using the menu on the left of the page, as well as a list of relevant publications and organisations.
Some routes include stretches along the cliff-tops, where great care needs to be taken, especially in wet or windy weather. Always keep well away from the cliff edge
